Idea Books is like my teen dream library. It takes you back to a time before the internet and smart phones when you traded foreign fashion magazines by the pool with your best friend and learned about art from your dad’s weird book shelves. Ironically it is through the web that these Dover Street Market based superbook sellers can now share their rare finds with the rest of the world. Follow them on Instagram for a daily reminder of the times before Instagram, or to buy an amazing new book (or ten) @ideabooksltd
